Workflow - Reformulating Suggesting Modifications

From Encyclopedia of Scientonomy
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Are the commentators of suggested modifications allowed to suggest reformulations of the original formulations?

As the members of the community comment on suggested modifications, new formulations are sometimes offered by the commentators. These reformulations are sometimes deemed advantageous by the community and can lead to a communal consensus. The question is whether such reformulations are allowed in the scientonomic workflow and, if so, how they should be handled in practice, including how, if at all, these reformulations should be published and who should get the authorship of these reformulations.

In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan and Jamie Shaw in 2019. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. At the moment, the question has no accepted answer in Scientonomy.
